Early morning on the BST in the SNOW and ICE.. Heading up the initial climb, I saw some blood spatter that turned into a river and then a lake of red... The Deer that hit the wrong side of a big cat I'm guessing was laying next to the trail. I decided to push on - the cat's got to be full at this point - right? .. Trail was ok, slippery in some spots, but a great way to get moving this AM.

Sweet TUITA run this AM with the G. Met at the Front Side Grandeur Assualt TH and powered up the 3k vert in just over two miles. Once we got to the top we snapped a few pics threw on the micro spikes and dropped down the back side. Snow was a little deep for the first mile or so and then it evened out down to Pipeline. Crused to the Rattlesnake TH and circled back on the road to the cars at the TH. Sweet Run and Temps. No dog encounters on the trail - I think that's a first for the milcreek canyon... Thanks Bro... Good times.

 

G had the vert at 3680ish....

Sweet 4-11 morning run up Wheelers to Art Nord then up the old snowbasin road to the middle fork connector and back. About another week or two and the middle to higher trails will be golden. The river is roaring. Awesome.

A sweet six on the Rocky point out and back. About 2000 ft gain in the first three - then you get to really enjoy them on the way back down. Trail prime to the three mile mark - then deep slushy snow still. Spring is finally in full swing. Love it. No one out except a yeti.

Striders 6 miler this morning. Saw a group run was happening on the Otown river trail, so I thought I'd get some road miles in. We headed East from the store up to Rainbow Gardens and back. I ended up running with Brett (who took 2nd overall at the slc marathon) and Lauren (manages the Otown store) for the run. Great morning out. Thanks Striders.

Rim trail to South Kaibab TH to Ribbon Falls back to South RIM via Bright Angel trail. One word to sum up this adventure EPIC. Headed down to the big ditch with three of my bros, Scarback, Gdoc, and Hairdog - all named men. We booked a couple nights at the south rim, so not to worry about lodging etc, Got there late Thursday night and decided we'd leave from the visitors center at 4:30 AM on Friday. With the amount of training we were all at we decided to scrap the plans for the full r2r2r and push for the r2rf2r.

Morning came fast and furious - We were running the rim trail connector to South Kaibab before I knew what hit me. South Kaibab is an amazing trail especially in the early morning dawn. We ran down the trail much faster than we expected and before long we were standing on the bridge crossing the colorado river heading into Phantom Ranch. At Phantom we decided to push up to Ribbon falls and see how everyone was feeling, so we headed out - Bright Angel canyon is great - stunning views etc. We lost HD somewhere on this trail and didn't find him again until he wandered up to the Bright Angel TH on the South Rim.. The three of us pushed the pace up the canyon a bit and while we were waiting for him at the falls, he missed the trail and went past Cottonwood campground... So he got some bonus miles..

We had a lemonade at Phantom Ranch on the way back.. very nice.

The climb from Phantom back to the south rim is a serious amount of vertical gain and pain. When you hit Indian Gardens and see you have about 5 miles and about 3500 ft left you feel the pain. It's also at this point you start seeing the day hiker carnaige along the trail. We pushed the pace pretty good passing almost everyone. even though we were into our trekk about 28 miles at this point. Scarback and Gdoc were pushing a hard pace and pulled me up the final climbs.

Epic fun day. PEACE.

Vert gain approx 6000 ft Total elevation gain/loss approx 12,000 ft

Back to the grind.. Made it out on the North Arm trail this AM with Matt. IT was COLD. Haven't had to wear my winter hat for a while now..Brr. Legs felt a little tired, but it felt good to hit the trail.
